If you want a quality shock that will provide a great ride, bilstein or Old Man Emu are two of the best. Both will set you back around 325.00 a set though. Almost all twin tube hydraulic shocks will ride about the same as your pro-comp shocks, nitrogen shocks will be firmer. So if you want cheaper shocks I would go with the best deal you can find from skyjacker, rancho, rough country, or who-ever.

  1. '95 XJ country edition, 4" coils/3/4" spacers, HD leafs with extra main added in, Ironman adjustable control arms, rough country shackles, aussie locker, JK rubicon shocks, 35" mudder's, soft 8's, cobra cb
  2. Sold'99 WJ limited, 4.7L, 3" IRO lift. Bilstein shocks, JK rubicon wheels, 255/70/17's, carolina driveshaft, IRO adjustable control arms, IRO adjustable A-arm
  3. Sold '00 TJ, 4" lift, rusty's adjustable control arms, skyjacker shocks, rock krawler adj. trac-bar,rugged ridge SYE and RE driveshaft, soft 8's, 35" mud king xt's,XJ HP D30 w/aussie locker, 4:88 yukon gears, hella 500's, rock crusher diff covers
4. 04 Dodge ram 1500 quadcab, yes, it has a hemi.
5. '08 BMW X3, Mods in progress.

Bilstein 5100's all the way, I just put on my second set (not due to failure, but me lifting it more and the first set being to short), got them in 170/60 valving this time the ride is much nicer than the last set with the harder valving.
